Abstract:

It is hypothesized that the short term objectives of doing this proposal are to better understand which sex steroids and which cellular immune functions control post resection metastatic cancer spread. The long term goal is to use this understanding to develop testable hypotheses for neoadjuvant hormonalimmunological therapies, which when given at or around the time of a cancer resection, might result in diminishing the subsequent metastatic spread of the resected cancer
